Flip Video Mino


We've seen the Ultra, now here's the Mino - a slimmer version of Flip's pocket camcorder.

Flip Mino review


With the world going hi-def, it seems a strange time for dirt-cheap, USB camcorders to become hot property. But this netbook moment in shooting video is all thanks to two things: YouTube, and the Flip Video. Of course, being the original web camcorder...

Flip Mino


A minor improvement over the Flip Video Ultra, but an improvement nonetheless, the Flip Mino is a fun camcorder, until you realise you want your home videos to look the bomb.

Still extremely user-friendly. It's lighter than its predecessor and has a handy editing feature now

Still no HD option, and why the piddly 2GB memory

Pure Digital Flip Mino Camcorder


When it comes to YouTube-friendly pocket camcorders, the Mino is king, but for a price.

Good video quality, Sleek, pocketable, easy to use

Slow and buggy video-uploading software, Pricey ; buttons too touch-sensitive
